Each month (with the exception of February) I have a few days extra which I’m using at the moment for non-full coverage pieces. At the moment I’m working on Mooka from Mirabillia which I bought fully kitted at The Knitting and Stitching Show a couple of years ago. I started her on Leap Day this year, the only February day which didn’t fit in with my week long rotations for my full coverage pieces.
I’m happy with my progress considering I haven’t worked on her that much. This month I worked on the pillow under her arm, some more on the bed post and made a start on her dress. The fabric is quite a loose and open weave so it’s difficult to keep those stitches nice and uniform. I’m going to continue working down the left side of the pattern next time and hopefully fill in more of her dress and the drapes of the bedding. I really should continue with working on the outer border frame as well so that I don’t leave all of that to fill in at the end.
